PASSIVE NIGHT OF THE SENSES [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 April 1984

PASSIVE NIGHT OF THE SENSES If God expects us to be attentive to uproot any sinful attachments to sense pleasures and to develop the Christian virtues that will allow us to put on the mind of Christ,He Himself calls us to enter passively into His special activities of purifying our senses. It is on this level of your freely and joyfully surrendering to God's purifying hand that will determine whether or not you will make any progress in contemplative prayer. I find that here is the turning point for most people serious about prayer. And sadly I observe that,although God wants all His Children to enter into a greater,mystical oneness with His trinitarian life,yet so few have the courage and perseverance to cooperate with the Heavenly Father's pruning. St. John of the Cross was so much in agreement with the above statement that he wrote his two classical works that form one complete work: Ascent of Mount Carmel and The Dark Night of the Soul. Let us study his valuable teaching on this...

SIGNS OF THE NIGHT OF THE SENSES [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 April 1984

SIGNS OF THE NIGHT OF THE SENSES God wishes to lead us all from the exercise of our controlled use in prayer of our imagination,memory,understanding and will. The reason is that He cannot break through on the spiritual level with a more immediate and direct manner of communication of Himself to us through deepening faith,hope and love as long as we are in control of the prayerful dialogue between ourselves and God. This usually hardens after years of such discursive prayer into a monologue where we are the main attraction,the doer, but not the loving listener. Spiritual delights may have become very strong in the beginning stages of our mental prayer. We may confuse the gifts of God with God Himself.So God closes up this avenue of sweetness that we can so easily become attached to and think feeling in prayer is the same as true love. His purifying us begins in the prelude to contemplation with God throwing us into utter aridity. No longer are we flooded with sensible feelings of God...

NO MORE MEDITATION? [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 April 1984

NO MORE MEDITATION? Does this mean that from now on one in individual prayer before God can never return to discursive meditation? We must realize that such a transition from discursive meditation to the beginning steps of contemplative prayer through the purification of the senses and a deeper surrender to God's more direct action through greater infusion of His gifts of faith,hope and love does not happen over night. Learning to walk or swim shows us how gradually a habit is formed. So in transitional prayer between meditation and contemplation one can inter-mingle,now centering upon God in quiet surrendering faith,hope and love,now using words,images and affections. The secret is not to return to meditation to avoid aridity and the sufferings necessary to advance further in prayer according to God's guidance. St. John encourages us,however,not to indulge in excessive meditative efforts or involved reasonings but to move in a gentleness of love under God's direction (Ascent:ll;l2,...

YOUR ATTITUDE UNDER SUCH PURIFICATION [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 April 1984

YOUR ATTITUDE UNDER SUCH PURIFICATION 1. you have discerned that God is leading you away from meditation into a more quiet,active-receptivity on your part to God's inbreaking presence,you are to persevere in your aridity. Increase your search for God alone. Focus all your desires on serving Him alone. Guard your heart that no inordinate desire for the delights of meditation draw you backwards. Vigilantly check that your life shows no inordinate attachment to person(s) or to material creatures. Surrender humbly in your inner poverty that God alone be your strength. 2. Be ready to accept willingly and with joy purifications that will come to you in other forms than excessive aridity in prayer. These will often come in your daily encounters with those closest to you in your family or religious community. Accept also with peace your own seeming inability to cope with the nitty-gritty problems of your daily life,especially in your work. 3. Transform such humiliations and ineffectiveness ...

Untitled [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 May 1984

Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ: May the mercies of our Lord Jesus Christ,the love of God the Father and the communion of the Holy Spirit be with you. The month of May is perhaps,as it is for me,one of your favorite months. It is the month the Church dedicates especially to Mary,Mother of God and our Mother too. I have chosen as the theme of the teaching for this month of May Mary as the woman wrapt in silence . Have you become aware of our Blessed Lady,breaking her silence over the world to call us to conversion and to prayer and fasting for peace in the world and for the conversion of the millions who do not know God? Usually I do not readily become excited about apparitions. But when you hear of what Mary has been asking of us through the six children in Medjugorje, a mountain town in the province of Hercegovina in Yugoslavia you will see that she is calling us back to nothing less than the Gospel. Mary first appeared on June 24,1981 to five teenage children who saw a light a...

WOMAN WRAPT IN SILENCE [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 May 1984

WOMAN WRAPT IN SILENCE The language of love is silence. Words are too noisy to express the oneness of two who have passed over and are experiencing a oneness that nothing can destroy except perhaps if one or other of the two introduce the terrible noise of selfishness. There are many types of silence. As star differs from star so do silences. There is the silence of a forestyno leaf stirring. There is the silence before battle as enemies hold their fire before the kill. Two lovers reach a union of love that silences all words. And then, there is the silence of death. God's language is silence as He brings forth a universe silently over millions of years. How quietly He is present in the flight of the butterfly and in the growth of the stately oak. But His greatest silence came into our noisy world when His Word leapt forth from God's bursting heart of love so great tnat other words were noise. That Word spoke of Love in action as He silently washed the feet of His disciples and bade...

A HUMAN SILENCE [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 May 1984

A HUMAN SILENCE But perhaps God's silence and even the silence of God's incarnate Word,Jesus Christ,are too "silent" for us that,though we have ears,we do not hear what is being said. God has given us in Mary,the Mother of Jesus and our Heavenly Mother, a concrete example of what true human silence means. She teaches us that silence takes place on several levels as we study how in her human existence she moved into full human integration. Silence is the heart on various levels as a human person moves toward total integration by submission to God's Spirit of love through complete obedient surrender. We can understand that Mary in her hidden life at Nazareth must have enjoyed the physical silence we miss in our hectic,noisy modern world. She surely had the peace and quiet of the home of her hard working carpenter-husband,Joseph,and the small town quiet of Nazareth, a non-technological environment. But Mary progressively moved all her life-time into deeper levels of psychic and spiritu...

A DESERT SILENCE [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 May 1984

A DESERT SILENCE Carl Jung , a non-Catholic Christian, wrote highly of Mary, the Mother of Jesus for he saw her as an archetype of the anima, the active receptive element in all of us that moves us toward completion through surrendering love. You,in your Catholic traditional teachings about Mary and your traditional devotions and piety toward her,have surely experienced the power of her example and intercession in your life. Praying the Rosary or other prayers before a statue of her or merely being prayerfully in her silent presence, you have undoubtedly many times felt more centered upon your true self,more recollected and closer to God through being present to Mary in her silence. St. Basil writes:"When the mind is no longer dissipated across the world through the senses,it returns to itself;and by means of itself it ascends to the thought of God." It is a call into the desert that is within us. That inner space is chaos until God's creative Spirit can hover over it and shed God's...

CALLED TO HOLINESS [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 May 1984

CALLED TO HOLINESS Being in Mary's presence in prayer,you enter into a stilling of all your powers of body,soul and spirit. In such external and internal silence you become,like Mary,ready to hear and obey God's Word. Silence is the environment in which you are to receive God's infinite love for you and enter into the Spirit's transformation of yourself in Christ that we call holiness. Jesus is the Image of the Father and according to this Image you have been created (Gn 1:26). Yet God's holiness in Jesus is still too awesome. He is still God,the eternal pre-existing Logos. God gives us a human sign, an image that has come into existence as a quantified person in matter. Mary is the image or sign of what God has destined us human beings to become in Christ Jesus. Yet she is wrapt in silence. "Now a great sign appeared in Heaven: a woman, adorned with the sun,standing on the moon,and with the twelve stars on her head for a crown"( Rv 12:1). At the beginning of His restoration of the ...

OUR GROWTH IN HOLINESS [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 May 1984

OUR GROWTH IN HOLINESS We see in our own lives what constituted in Mary's life her holiness. We,too,have received the full,gratuitous gift of redemption, the same that was offered to her. We,along with Mary,have not "merited" in any way God's free and healing love that has come to us through Jesus Christ,Victim and High-Priest of God's redeeming love. Mary along with us is redeemed and called to holiness to share with her Son in the service of building up His Body,the Church. If you and I have received gratuitously from God gifts of service in the Church,why should we not praise God for His outstanding gifts given to Mary that put her from the very beginning of her existence under God's protective love? Her holiness consisted,as does ours,in her constant desire to empty herself in loving surrender to be filled with God's riches of grace in order to live in loving service to others. Mary's holiness is ultimately our belief and hope that,as Mary through the Holy Spirit was always in C...

A SLOW PROCESS [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 May 1984

A SLOW PROCESS Have you seriously reflected on your own call by God to holiness? Perhaps your reading of the lives of the Saints,especially those written about Mary,has fashioned for you an idea of sanctity that is far beyond your reach. It is regretable that so many popular sermons and pious writings about Mary make her out to be an "abnormal" human being,more "holy" than human. Holiness is not a static moment given to Mary in her conception. For her it consists in a process of discovering that God's love has truly surrounded and completely penetrated her. She had to push her consciousness,always by the power of the Holy Spirit,to new levels of awareness that God was Allness and she was emptiness,filled by God's gift of love. The silence of the desert of the "Remnant" of the Israelites in exile,the Anawim of the desert,focused to a point of greatest intensity in Mary. In her poverty and humility,Mary gradually grew in a surrendering adoration that was actualized by her fidelity to ...

CHILDLIKE CONTENTMENT [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 May 1984

CHILDLIKE CONTENTMENT Have you ever taken time out to watch a small child,say about one or two years old? How contented they can be with the simple things of life. Everything fascinates them and fills them with wonderment. Contentment is the opposite of a physical,psychical and spiritual nervousness,of inner noise. Such restless nervousness usually flows from a faulty relationship between ourselves and God. Mary must have enjoyed from earliest childhood a contentment that was a result of the Holy Spirit's gifts of deep,abiding faith, trust and love toward God. She knew she was guided in all events of her life by the powerful hands of a loving God-Father. She was moved by the Spirit to experience God as Abba,Father (Rm 8:16;Ga 4:6). She was content with each moment for her Heavenly Father was continually manifesting Himself in the present "now". Before her son,Jesus,had preached about the loving care of the Heavenly Father (Mt 6:26-30; Lk 12:22-31), Mary experienced the peace and joy...

A MOST HUMAN MARY [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 May 1984

A MOST HUMAN MARY We are left with no details about Mary's life before the Annunciation. But her life afterjthat comes through on the pages of the New Testament s allows us to form a consistent way of conceiving her holiness. Mary evolved into holiness through the ordinary situations in which she found herself. We can only in silence imagine what she must have experienced of God's beauty when she found herself falling in love with young Joseph. As she moved toward a deeper human love for him,she discovered more of God's loveliness through Joseph. His strong body,supple yet tender,gave to her a holy revelation of God unobtainable in any other way. She found God s love in his pure love and self-sacrifice for her. The Holy Spirit is moving us Catholics to appreciate Mary's holiness in her total humanness,in her growth in faith that necessitated vital contacts with a material world,with real men,women and children,that have bodies and passions,moods and depressions. As she gave herself ...

I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 May 1984

I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW 1. "What should Catholics hold on reincarnation?" Mrs.E.Moss;lthaca. If by reincarnation one means a return to this earth after a biological death to begin another human existence,same soul,but a different body,this would be an erroneous teaching unacceptable in the Christian revelation. However,many modern theologians present Purgatory as a process of therapy whereby an individual,after the one final death,may undergo many purifications and therefore new relationships on body,soul and spirit levels. 2. "I heard a recent lecture by a priest who is a scripture scholar and he said he did not believe in Satan and devils." Annie Moose, Boise,lD. Theologians today are examining the traditional teaching on devils as presented in Holy Scripture and in ordinary piety. In the New Testament writers we do not always find a clear distinction between being ill,especially mentally,and being possessed by a devil. It is a tenet of Christian belief that God created angelic spiri...
